What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: April 29, 2023
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age. Finally on October 3, 2020 at age 72, I was able to accomplish my goal of shooting my age. Shot 71 at Coto de Caza - south course from the blue tees.

First out at 7am on another overcast morning. Much busier than expected but being first out - no pace of play issues. Course right now is in very nice condition. Having just completed the "Windmill Classic" tournament last weekend, the course had been prepared for that tourney, and it showed. Greens have lost a little of their speed from the tourney which had them close to 11.5 to 12.0, but now seemed to closer to 10.5. Fairways, bunkers, tee boxes all excellent. Rough is just OK.» Close

Have not played Glen Ivy for a few years, so was excited to return. While we had the second time off out at 6:09am, we were able to get out first, which I thought was great ......... until we ran into a reverse shotgun which began on #15, with two groups on each hole, so we bailed and drove in. I just wish someone would have told us about this because we could have made adjustments. So unfair !
Overall I thought the course was in much better condition than when I played here in 2020. While the greens were a bit bumpy and too slow for my taste, they certainly were acceptable. Good coverage in the fairways. The greenside bunkers had plenty of sand, but were compacted, which made getting "through" the sand to flop it out rather difficult.
The staff was really great, except for the fact they failed to advise us of the reverse shotgun. I have very mixed feeling about that.» Close

Have not played Tustin Ranch for a number of years (Primarily due to cost) Out early at 5:30am on a mild morning. Fairly busy considering it was still somewhat dark out. Lots of maintenance, which I kind of expected, but it would have been nice if they would have had pins in the greens. Apparently the mower who was in front of me just left them all out, because another person was going to change pin locations. Finally able to get in front of him after #9, so at least I had flagstick on the back nine.
Truth is I was surprised and disappointed with the conditions. Greens were still not fully recovered from the aeration, but beyond that, there were numerous bare spots on the greens and they were certainly neither quick nor true. Same thing in the fairways. Mostly good, but more bare areas than I would have expected, particularly when you charge so much. Did not find a single bunkers, but they all appeared fine.
I frequently ask myself why people pay so much $$ to play some of these course, when for a fraction, you can play many of the municipal courses. But South Orange County seems to have no problem charging whatever the market will bare. Location - location- location
I will say that the staff in the pro shop and the starter were fantastic.» Close

Out early on an overcast morning. Have to agree with the prior review, that this course has greatly improved over the past several months. Kudos to the maintenance staff for their efforts, as the improvement is very much noticeable. Greens rolled well, decent coverage in the fairways, and most of the tee boxes were so much better than in the past. As always the staff is friendly and accommodating, and for South Orange County, reasonably priced» Close

Out early on a very mild morning. As usual, it was busy, but the staff was efficient and we were able to get out on time, in fact we actually got out a few minutes early. The course was in much better condition than it was when I last played here in November. The greens rolled nicely, but were much slower than I expected or that they appeared. For the most part, good coverage in the fairways. Everything was nice and green thanks to all the rains we received this year.
I always enjoy playing this shorter course. Despite the length, this course offers a fun challenge with the interesting green complexes. Just a fun mix of holes. My only complaint is the increase in green fees from just a few months ago. Welcome to 2023 and Orange County» Close
